Sun Life History

28 07 2010

Sun Life has produced a fun little video about the history of the corporation. See here.

Laurence Mussio of McMaster University has written a 680-page history of the company. It is due to be published in 2011, according the MQUP website. I`m looking forward to getting my hands on that book.  Sun Life has a fascinating history– it expanded overseas quite early in its history and was well established in the West Indies, China, and India in the early 20th century.

Sun Life set up its first office in Bombay in 1892. In 1908, the office moved to an elaborate Italianate building designed by Bombay-based architectural firm of Messrs Gostling & Morris. The building features stained-glass windows and bas-relief statuary of a charging chariot.

I found this picture of the building on the website
